    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The job is casual and not physically hard. It's mostly indoors in a climate controlled environment. The day goes by fast and the people are nice and helpful.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great and there is no employee discount.

    Advice to Management

    Have the MEA's were a different color shirt rather than orange and maybe without the HD logo on it since MEA's are not supposed to help customers. We would get more done if we weren't having to handoff customers to store associates.

    I have been working at The Home Depot part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Actually on average nice customers and forklifts now I have to fill space for my 20 word minimum but they did tach me to forklift

    Cons

    Huge store, lots of stealing in the stores they specifically look at women first to take leadership positions so they look more diverse so if you're a man good luck moving up

    Advice to Management

    Don't let your memes be memes

    I have been working at The Home Depot (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A great first job during high school, you learn so much from Home Depot and can apply it at home.

    Cons

    There's only so many hours you can have as a part timer so it sucks but that's how the company has it set up.

    Advice to Management

    Not really much to say, management does their job and I mean what more can you ask from them, everyone is very nice and hard working.

    I worked at The Home Depot full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, competitive pay, culture / values, lower key in the winter.

    Cons

    As a manager long hours, do more with less mentality caused us to be behind a lot. Leadership within my particular building didn't seem concerned with your needs compared to needs of the business. Associates knew a lot more that was going on or about to happen before the rest of the leadership team. If you are looking to attend college to move up in your career and work I would not recommend becoming a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Hire associates to match work volume, train staffing and implement any larger operational changes or restructuring BEFORE peak seasons / events.

    I have been working at The Home Depot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits for FT and PT and THD really shows it cares about all associates and in helping them to create their own wealth and success in life through some many different resources/programs offered. THD really does try to live its 8 core values. This really is a great place to work at any level!

    Cons

    Working inside the store can sometimes be hard; especially trying to meet the THD standard of customer service, without enough staff in the building.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to training and support associates
